The Wake-n-Shake iPhone app makes you shake your phone for a reeeally long time before it turns off. It would certainly wake me up, and my roommate, and all her pets. Luckily, I don’t have an iPhone.
Jawbone’s Up is a silent alarm in the form of a wristband that wakes the wearer up gently by vibrating. It claims to track you’re sleep cycle and wake you at the most natural time. I just hope it doesn’t decide the most natural waking time is after a big morning meeting has started.
The Up might wake you up naturally, but it doesn’t sound nearly as fun as a Flying Alarm Clock. A helecoptor piece flies away when the alarm goes off, making you get out of bed to find it and return it to the base to stop the beeping.
For a really stressful wakeup, try the Diffusable Alarm Clock. Cut the wrong wire and it explodes! Really it just flashes a mini-light show at you. Probably not the most effective alarm, but it would make for a good conversation piece.
There’s always the old classic of silly alarm clocks, Clocky. Don’t forget it’s cousin Tocky. These guys start rolling across the room when you’re alarm goes off – forcing you to get out of bed or endure harsh beeping. If you’re really lucky and don’t close your doors, your alarm clock might introduce you to a cute neighbor, like it the video below.
